We were in Barbados for a day on a cruise ship. The couple we were travelling with had previously visited the Boatyard and really wanted to go back again. It was a great choice. (I think it cost us USD 5.00 per person to get there by shared taxi.) The cost at the resort was USD 40.00 per couple. We... More

There is nothing we hate more when travelling than a tourist trap and yes, this is one! Firstly, it is packed and there are no chairs to sit anywhere. We quickly realized that there are a ton of beaches in the surrounding area that are free with restaurants right there, so why pay the big entrance fee? They also do... More

We spent an afternoon during March break. Please don't tell me these people care about their guests. They had a faulty iceberg climbing floating toy, which kept failing over. While the staff watched the guests trying to pull it back over, guest all afternoon were debilitated by a burning rashes caused by the ropes. Happened time and time again but... More

I really liked it and the staff where nice and was nice to the kids. They had a pretty good snorkeling water with sea turtles and a ship wreck near. They had a store and some showers you could go to and beach beds on the beach. There food was also very good and not so pricy like the other... More

Best beach I've ever been to- it was absolutely gorgeous! Food was good and the ice cold beer wasn't bad either! 😉included in the $20 dollar entry price are your sunbeds for the day and a trip out in a boat to snorkel with the turtles just off shore, even included the transport back to our ship. Amazing day spent... More

20usa dollars got your entry, free cocktail, and a bed and umbrella on the beach and a free taxi back to the port. Drinks reasonable, rest rooms, showers, changing area and food also good. However the golden sands, and the warm crystal clear sea is divine. Hard to leave this location and will definitely visit again. (Ps did not par... More
